Another drive through fundraiser for the annual Alpena 4th of July fireworks display will be held Friday.

Chamber of commerce staff will be selling fireworks bracelets outside the chamber office on Chisholm Street, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

An effort is underway to raise $23,000 by May 28 for the annual fireworks show.

As of Monday, a total of $7,000 had been raised. As previously reported, LaFarge has said it would contribute the same amount raised, up to $12,000. The Alpena City Council is expected to discuss a proposed contract with the fireworks provider when it meets June 1.
